The Tech Factor: Seedcamp launches The X Factor for startups across Europe

I’ve just finished at the Seedcamp breakfast briefing where besides feeding London’s tech journos with scrambled egg, Seedcamp announced the winning finalists for Seedcamp Week coming up 21st-25th September 2009. You can see the finalists over at TechCrunch at 1pm, but…drum roll please… they’ve also announced some exciting changes to the way they are running Seedcamp Week next year. They are launching The X Factor for startups across Europe- Lets call it The Tech Factor!

They will hold mini one day Seedcamps in countries across Europe, the winners of these mini Seedcamps will move to London in the summer and be provided with accommodation and mentoring to prepare them for Seedcamp week next year. To get a place in for the final, where the winners gain investment and a strong worldwide network, startups will have to attend the mini Seedcamp days in their local city  to go through to the final at Seedcamp camp week September 201o.

Saul Klein will be the ‘Simon Cowell’ of Tech- lets just hope he’s not wearing the high waisted trousers!

    This is awesome, do you have any news on when they are accepting applications?

    I’ve also just seen another incubator / investor thing has just gone live at http://www.findinvestgrow.com – does anyone know anything about these guys?
